§ 12. Mr. Frankel
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that cases have occurred where the curfew regulation applicable to enemy aliens has been broken to enable certain enemy aliens to fulfil broadcasting engagements with the British Broadcasting Corporation; and whether this was done with his knowledge and authority?
§ Sir J. Anderson
The order to which my hon. Friend refers expressly provides for the granting of exemptions, and there is no breach of the order if the police are satisfied that for the purpose of enabling an alien to earn his livelihood some relaxation of the restrictions can properly be granted.
